The FreeWave Fusion Basic 2.4 GHz Wireless Trigger System for Nikon from Vello is a versatile, reliable remote control kit that will trigger a camera, shoe mount flash, and studio lights from up to 328' away. Sixteen discrete channels provide the ability to avoid interference from other users while maximizing your creative potential.

Use the system to expand the capabilities of a shoe mount flash or studio lights without the hassle of tangled PC cords. The FreeWave system is also great for capturing wildlife. Simply place the camera on a tripod and use the FreeWave Fusion trigger as a remote camera release from a distance. The trigger allows camera's shutter remotely to avoid unwanted camera vibration for sharper macro imaging. The 2.4GHz radio signal will pass through walls, windows, floors, and other obstructions.

The FreeWave Fusion Basic 2.4 GHz Flash Trigger Set is compatible with most major manufacturers' shoe-mount flashes with manual power control. Pentax, and Sony Minolta-type shoes are not compatible. Each unit runs off two AAA batteries (not included).

Wireless Triggering
The FreeWave Fusion Basic can wirelessly trigger hot shoe flashes, studio lights, or a camera from up to 328' away. It can also be used as a wireless "cable release" for wildlife or on a tripod for macro work.
2.4 GHz Frequency Signal
This low frequency signal can pass through and around obstructions offering greater flexibility in placement of flash units and cameras.
Flash Sync up to 1/250 sec
Take advantage of sync speeds that match the synch speed rating of a camera up to 1/250 sec.
16 Channels
The wireless system's 16 channels allow transmitter/receiver settings to be changed to avoid interference from other wireless devices.
Multi-Purpose Flash Trigger
Multiple receivers to trigger many flashes may be used with a single transmitter. Multiple cameras may also be triggered with additional receivers and shutter release cables.
LED Indicators
Confirm communication of trigger system with pre-focus, shutter release, and flash trigger in wireless mode.
Long Exposure Photography
Use the FreeWave Fusion Basic on a tripod with a camera's Bulb setting to make exposures as long as the camera will support without touching the camera.
Dual-Function Shutter Release Button
Press halfway to focus, press fully to trigger the shutter.
Wildlife Photography
Release the shutter from a safe distance for photos of hard to approach wildlife.
Macro Photography
Use the transmitter as a wireless "cable release" to avoid accidental movement when shooting close-up.

Vello Fusion Basic Reviews

It works great!

By Leslie
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2023-07-13

I wasn't ready yet to spring for the complicated Godox remote TTL system, but I still wanted something simple and not too expensive to begin honing some twilight tripod work and remote wildlife skills. After reading some reviews stating the unit wouldn't work but deciding to get this anyway, I downloaded the owner's manual that B&H conveniently provides on this product page, and I read it before delivery. This product looks intuitive, and for the most part it is, but the consumer still needs to read through the manual at least once to understand where the snafus are. Even so, I still made one snafu, which I couldn't figure out how to correct until I went back a re-read the manual. When the instructions say to plug your remote receiver cable into your camera and then turn the camera on, well, that's what you need to do. Your camera needs to be off first, you wire up the unit, then you turn your camera on. The unit would not work until I did, well, exactly what the instructions said to do --exactly -- and then the unit worked perfectly. The remote focused and fired my camera while I was standing next to it. It focused and fired my camera when I was ten feet away. It worked when I went back into my home, brewed a cup of coffee, and sat behind a plane of glass sixty feet away. Now if I could only tell the birds where to perch.

Super easy to use!

The fusion basic works great for my needs. I have used them to trigger my Speedlights off camera, also works to trigger my neewer monolights and will remotely trigger my camera. Comes with all the cables I needed to connect to all my gear!

My old triggers stopped working with my new cameras and were too old to update so i had to upgrade instead. I'm not huge strobe shooter so I don't need top of the line or super durable. This worked great out of the box with my Z9 (in manual mode, i dont use TTL).

Works great. Great Value

Enables me to use my older Nikon Speedlights with Z9

By Ronald

The older Nikon Speedlights don't work with the new Z9. Bummer! But (good news) popping these on to the Z9 permits one to use the older Speedlights either on camera or remotely.

Asked by: William
I would recommend viewing the instruction manual under the "In The Box" section under the Overview tab on our website for full instructions on how to use the Vello FreeWave Fusion Basic 2.4 GHz Wireless Trigger System for Nikon, B&H # VEFWB24N. The most basic answer would be ensure there are batteries in the units, place the transmitter in your camera's hot shoe, place the receiver on the external flash you are using, turn both units on, and ensure they are set to the same channel. Pressing the shutter button on the camera causes the transmitter to send a signal to the receiver to wirelessly trigger the off-camera flash unit.
